This glorious ocean cruising yacht, whose name in Latin means ‘time flies’, mostly plies the Mediterranean, calling into small ports such as the bewitching Kale Koyu on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. But it will dart over to the Caribbean occassionally to compete in the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Virgin Gorda.
Built in Arkin Puva Yachts in Turkey and laucnhed in 2013, this 274-metre varnished mahogony yacht is in the neo-classic style favoured by sail traditionalists. Indeed, a bygone age is evident; the understated furnishings stylish against teak panelling, yet with 21st century electronics.
Being 54 metres at its widest, TEMPUS FUGIT is impressively spacious, with a centre cockpit on deck plus a saloon and dining area below. Three double cabins sleep siz guests, with three crew in attendance. All in all, it’s an elegant, sail-driven response to the march on power, diesel and celebrity.Download Article
